Q. Talk us through what happened there.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yeah, sure. Well, the main reason is cramping and
soreness in the whole body.

What an idiot!!!! This is normal for these conditions and could have
waited until the shade covered court. Why the heck would he retire in
a slam QF when the issues he had wouldn't risk his future playing
career?

The thing I really dislike about the guy is that he first complains
about something and then suddenly does not want to talk more about it.
Then he should just shut up in the first place. The recovery argument is
embarrassing to read. It is fair and square to divide the night matches
between the players.

To me it sounded like he retired because he was not able to execute full
speed on his serve. Well, that is about the weakest excuse I have ever
heard for retiring in a quarterfinal in a grand slam.

PS.
